A study by ZecOps, a cybersecurity company, says that hackers can carry out attacks through a bug in the Mail application.

Attackers sent an empty letter to victims, and when they opened it, the program would freeze, forcing the owners to reboot the device. During the reboot, hackers were gaining access to data on a smartphone or tablet.

Six “high-level people” have already become victims of the attackers who exploited this vulnerability, ZecOps says.

In particular, we are talking about representatives of one of the richest companies in the United States, the leaders of the Japanese mobile operator and a European journalist.

The representative of Apple in a comment to Reuters said that the problem will be fixed in the next version of the software.

ZecOps reported to Apple about the vulnerability in March. The company did not know anything about her.

It is believed that Apple technology is safer than devices from other manufacturers.

A feature of the discovered hacking method is that victims do not have to download any programs or visit malicious sites.
